I snowshoed this on one of their “winter weekends”. It was cool to walk through the old buildings and get to warm up at a fire with some hot cocoa at the halfway point. I highly recommend xc skiing it though.

Cross country ski to Camp Santanoni. Open with hot chocolate at the Artist Studio. Snow was powdery and perfect. Mid-teens all day.

Great hike for someone looking for a long hike, that is somewhat hilly, but generally pretty easy. It looks us ~4.5 hours round trip at a moderate pace, stopping at the camp for about 20 minutes. The scenery is great, but the best part is how remote and secluded it was. The entire day, we saw one cross country skier. Be careful to watch out for falling limbs from frozen trees (a real danger the entire hike). I would recommend it!

Nice trail to see one of the Adirondack Great Camps. Ski or snowshoe.

We didn’t end up going up the mountain but we hiked the overgrown road with our toddler and it was beautiful

Ok trail. Definitely NO pond; there was a mucky green swampy area but no pond. The only good views overlooked a gravel/stone? mine, not the most picturesque! I don't think it worth much of a drive to hike this. If you live locally, sure it would be a nice trail to run as it has good footing and decent elevation gain, but not much else going for it.

Nice walk in the woods and well marked until....it wasn’t! All of a sudden there were no official markers and it was overgrown in spots. We followed pink ribbons and overshot the peak which is in the middle of the woods. There are some decent views from the rocks along the trail, but hard to get a clear view. The view will probably be nicer in the autumn when the leaves fall.

Summit was not the best but we loved this hike as a family with two small children last year!

Fabulous trail. Took the carriage one way. Walked back. Great people at the camp. The route has great vegetation with a lot of different ferns. If you love architecture you will get a real kick out of the farm buildings and the great camp. They are clearly doing a wonderful job refurbishing it. A perfect day with really wonderful and friendly guides.

getting to the mountain in the winter was a bit tricky because the road is marked as private but if you keep driving you eventually get to a parking spot that is labeled public. the trail to the base of the mountain is not labeled well at all and not traveled on much in the winter but once you get to the base the mountain is marked very well even though the trail is overgrown also very steep. all being said would still do it again, great views at the top

Easy ski to the Great Camp yesterday. The trail is great for ski and snowshoe, not very steep and a fun way to spend a morning. Took us three hours to ski out and back, including a break.

Great snowshoe hike. Wide, flat, and well broken out trail (road) culminating in the Camp. Lots of cross-country skiers, so if you're on snowshoes try to avoid stepping on their tracks by sticking to the middle of the trail.

Absolutely amazing historic site with a very nice progression of interesting features throughout the hike. It’s not very rigorous or challenging, but I have never seen anything like it before.

Very easy 5 mile walk in the the great camp. I didn't like the fact that there is horse manure on the road going into Newcomb lake. Spent way to many steps zig zaging around the crap. Owner of the horses should have to clean up at least once a week. I give it 5 stars though for the historic value.

This is like our 10th time hiking to this mountain. It never gets old. It is so secluded out here. So underused, what a shame. has some of the best views of the McRorie Lake, Mud Pond, Cedarlands, and the Long Lake area.

Nice easy trail with cute views of Lake Champlain.

Rented bike just down the road from Cloudspitter and did the trail. Was beautiful and the free canoeing once you get there was a nice bonus.
